I know, I know… You’re thinking, “Another Star Wars outfit??” Well, like it or not, right now is a great time to be a Star Wars fan. Not only is there so much excitement over The Force Awakens, but Celebration VII just happened and that came with so much cool merchandise, including some very awesome new apparel from one of my favorite geeky brands, We Love Fine. I love how fashion forward they are and that especially shows in some of the new stuff that came out at Celebration. I was dying over this Luke Skywalker Landspeeder tank at their booth, but wasn’t able to get my hands on one until they got released online the other week. It’s definitely a little bit of a throwback to the ’80s (you know I love the ’80s) and this time I decided to pair it with a pair of white skinny jeans and big hoop earrings to compliment the era.
Everyone has a bad day once in a while and it’s days like today that I rely on fashion to perk up my mood. This X-Wing tank by Fifth Sun easily did the trick with it’s fun rainbow graphics and slight ’80s throwback. I decided to go even more ’80s by pairing it with this denim vest, which I am loving as an alternative piece to wear with my geeky tees. And don’t forget you can get your own X-Wing tank by entering my giveaway with Fifth Sun on Instagram! 3 lucky people will get their choice of tee or tank from Fifth Sun, so don’t miss out!

People always ask me how I’m able to maintain this blog, have a full time job, make cosplays, and not go insane. And I always tell them the same thing – it’s really a labor of love. This weekend took my “labor of love” to the next level as I got the opportunity to film with Nerdist for an entire day! I’m still trying to figure out how this all happened and I’m incredibly humbled that they even reached out to me in the first place. The whole experience was amazing and one that I’ll never forget! Of course, filming for over 9 hours was extremely exhausting and this morning I woke up feeling like I couldn’t move – well, barely enough to turn on my phone and watch an episode of The Clone Wars. However, once I dragged myself out of bed, I quickly realized it was May 4th and was super excited to celebrate Star Wars once again! I’m not sure how one is supposed to celebrate Star Wars Day these days, but all I know is that the force was definitely with me this weekend and especially today. Happy Star Wars Day and May the Force Be With You!
I still can’t believe that it was only about 4 days ago that I was posting about how excited I was about Star Wars Celebration, the new The Force Awakens trailer, and just wanting to be around all the masses of Star Wars fans. I knew that right after seeing the trailer, I felt a wave of regret for not going to the event and by Friday morning, I was already thinking about the possibility of even going at the last minute. Well, with a bit of convincing, some internet luck, and Sunday tickets still available, we hopped in our car Friday night and made our way down south to Celebration Anaheim for the weekend! Woo hoo!!
Star Wars Celebration just kicked off and even though I am dying to be there, I’m just going to have to be there in spirit. I mean, how awesome was it that they live streamed the Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel with JJ Abrams and showed us the new trailer? I don’t know about you, but watching the panel, seeing more on set photos, being introduced to BB8 and then seeing the second trailer just made my day literally brought tears to my eyes. I’ve actually been pretty torn about this movie since I’m one of those fans who is trying to avoid spoilers, but at the same time, is dying to see more, but after seeing the new trailer, I can’t wait. How awesome was that intro scene? And what is that chrome Stormtrooper?? So many questions, yet I don’t want any answers. Anyhow, Star Wars Celebration is kicking off, spring is almost here, and there’s just a lot of Star Wars love all around this week! I can’t wait!
It happens every year when the weather gets colder – I put away my geeky tees and tanks and it’s on to sweaters, sweaters, and more sweaters. Since most of my geeky wear is definitely more summer related, it’s always a challenge to figure out new ways to incorporate those items into a cold weather wardrobe. Sometimes it’s just a matter of wearing something in a different way – take for example this Black Milk Death Star dress that I am wearing as a top. I always forget that dresses can sometimes make great separates and that they are a “fully operational” wardrobe piece. Do you guys have any secret tips for wearing things in creative ways?
